During the evaluation process, Wiredrive reviewed several open source solutions that failed to locate known vulnerabilities. Wiredrive asked their Enterprise customers’ security departments for security audit recommendations. After additional research, Wiredrive realized that the recommended security vendors were frequently using Checkmarx. When one of Wiredrive’s major customers specifically recommended Checkmarx, they decided to evaluate the product.
Wiredrive found Checkmarx’s CxCloud solution to be very easy to use. As a first step, Wiredrive tested its WordPress plugin and identified one unknown vulnerability. The test was easy to perform because CxCloud integrated directly with Github. CxCloud showed the complete attack vector and recommended the best fix locations in the code.
Wiredrive ran their second test to validate their custom framework, which revealed both known and unknown vulnerabilities. Since Checkmarx met all evaluation requirements, Wiredrive signed up.
As a first pass, Wiredrive uploaded the code base directly to CxCloud and ran a full scan. The QA team grouped the results and prioritized remediation. The initial scans found vulnerabilities in the deprecated code, which was quickly addressed. Wiredrive successfully integrated Bamboo with the Checkmarx CLI interface with the help from the Checkmarx’s support team. This let developers fix bugs and see the number of vulnerabilities decrease on an ongoing basis.
Now, Wiredrive runs a full scan on every build to make sure that new code adheres to secure coding best practices. This process satisfies their most demanding Enterprise customer requirements.
